Indian Rocks Beach Vacation Information

Indian Rocks Beach, Florida is located on one of the barrier islands that border the Gulf Coast of the Tampa Bay. Indian Rocks Beach is among the several small beach communities that make up the central section of the Suncoast barrier islands.


Legend has it that an Indian Chief went to a spring near the location of current day Indian Rocks to seek relief for an unknown ailment. Settlers often observed Indians standing near the rocks that encircled the springs and when the Indians were seen walking towards the springs the settlers would say "The Indians are on their way to the rocks."

A bridge was constructed from the mainland to Indian Rocks Beach in 1916 and dev elopement quickly followed. After World War ll, Indian Rocks became a favorite vacation and weekend get-a-way spot.

Indian Rocks Beach offers many recreational facilities such as tennis courts, basketball courts, a ball field, leash-free pet park, and a state of the art skateboard park. The City also sponsors such events as Beauty & the Beach Festival, Fall Arts Festival, and Oktoberfest.

Indian Rocks Beach has 27 public beach accesses/parks, including Pinellas County 18th Avenue Park, each with it’s own unique character and style that will lead you to our paradise.

In an effort to prevent looting and burglary after a large-scale mandatory evacuation, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office and the barrier islands have joined forces to provide free Emergency Access Permits to all businesses and residents of the barrier islands. Once a mandatory evacuation order has been lifted, Emergency Access Permits will be required to re-enter an evacuated area. There are nine entry points to the barrier islands. Access will be limited based on the closest entry point to your residence.
